Mariella was born on Nov. 11, 1928 in Nobles County, MN, the daughter of Nickolas and Anna (Schmit) Probst. She married Alvin Heeren in 1951 in St. Killian; he died in 1982. She worked in the kitchen of the Marina Inn Motel in S. Sioux City, NE, for over 25 years, retiring at the age of 83 in 2012. She was a member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in S. Sioux City, NE.

She enjoyed yard work, gardening, baking, playing Yatzee, and attending several Sioux City Explorer and Clinton LumberKings baseball games. Mariella also enjoyed being around and occasionally babysitting her 2 favorite bassett hounds, Boomer and Bernice. She enjoyed July 4th fireworks celebrations in her backyard with Ron, Marcia and Kirsten, minus the actual fireworks, which she was not a fan of. Mariella volunteered time at the Winnebago Reservation, helping to teach canning skills. She also understood the importance of helping others and in doing so, donated approximately 6 gallons of blood over her lifetime. Most importantly, she looked forward to and enjoyed free pie Wednesday’s at the Village Inn with her granddaughter Kirsten a time each week where grandma caught up with the daily happenings of her granddaughter.

Mariella is survived by her son, Ron (Marcia) Heeren of Clinton, IA; her granddaughter, Kirsten; two sisters, Anna Mae Fuerstenberg of St. Killian, MN and Angie (James) Mixner of Worthington, MN; a brother, Donald (Doris) Probst of Worthington, MN; a sister-in-law, Elvera Wagner of Worthington, MN; and several nieces & nephews.
